Description

Bring Your Own Binoculars and Chair! This is a guided tour into the wonders of the night sky that are visible through common binoculars. Guests will station their chairs at socially distanced locations in the parking lot outside the observatory and knowledgeable docents with laser pointers will guide guests to the hidden secrets of the night sky. Expect to see double stars, open star clusters, globular clusters, maybe even a planet or two!

You MUST have a ticket to attend this event; advance tickets are recommended.  Attendance is limited by COVID restrictions and, while remaining tickets will be sold at the door, they will be subject to availability.

Cost is $25 per adult ($20 for youth and seniors) and includes the State Park parking fee.
